SONAR 115 Xi
EVP/SRP*:*empfohlener Verkaufspreis / Suggested Retail Price
SONAR 115 Xi is a powered, state-of-the-art loudspeaker that provides top sound, whether as a full-range speaker, as a stage monitor or in combination with a subwoofer. Powerful components and meticulous HK Audio acoustic engineering guarantee an impressive sound experience with a strong bass.
The SONAR Xi models are fullrange speakers designed for use as a stand-alone speaker, in front PAs, as stage monitors and as very powerful mid-high units in subwoofer-and-satellite systems. Their elegant yet robust polymer enclosures are tough enough to withstand years of hard wear on the road. A steel grille with acoustic foam backing protects the loudspeakers from knocks, dust and splashed water.
The speaker stand mount’s ingeniously simple design features an adjustable tilt angle that can be changed at the push of a button to align the speaker to the audience for maximum effect. With the benefit of their slanted housings, Xi models can also be set sideways for use as wedge monitors. Flying these enclosures from the ceilings of clubs and pubs is so easy with the built-in M10 rigging points.
Sizable but still comfortably transportable, the SONAR 115 Xi converts all the extra volume and power of the large 15″ woofer into higher SPL and – above all – into powerful low-end punch that really is all about the bass. All this makes the SONAR 115 Xi the go-to solution for DJs, fitness studios, entertainers with keyboards or playback devices and everyone else who wants to roll without an added subwoofer. Its remarkable efficiency also makes the SONAR 115 Xi the perfect complement for subwoofers in bands that want their PA to speak with authority and project with assertiveness.

Intuitive control via color display
The built-in digital mixer can be controlled via color display and offers two input channels for microphone or line signals and an AUX channel for analog and Bluetooth 5.0 signals. It even accepts both types of signal at the same time! The Mix Out forwards signals to added speakers or furnishes the signal for live recording.
Each of the three channels features a dedicated Volume control and a richly appointed 3-band EQ. These speakers also come with three sound modes (Live, DJ, Monitor) and a preset for setups with a subwoofer.
A dual-purpose Master control adjusts the mixer’s overall volume and affords access to the DSP menu.
Bluetooth TWS (True Wireless Stereo) is on board to link two simultaneously controlled Xi models for audio streaming in a twinned setup that delivers true stereo sound. In a linked setup, two SONAR Xi speakers can be controlled simultaneously with the remote app.
SONAR REMOTE app
The SONAR REMOTE app for tablets and smartphones running iOS and Android operating systems offers much more than just a remote control option for the built-in digital mixing console. It also lets you control all settings and functions of the Xi models, including the parameters of the 3-band EQ for each channel. You can save scenes to put frequently used presets at your fingertips whenever you need them. These could be settings for your favorite microphones, varying SONAR Xi setups and basic configurations for different venues.
iOS version will be available in App store end of November 2020. Android version will be available in Google Play store in January 2021.
The Xi cabinet’s display shows all settings as they are adjusted in the app, and vice versa. The two displays sync up in real time.
